    Luckily my VW store is less than 4 miles from where we live, so stopping by isn't an issue. If it were where the Honda dealer is, then I'd not be real happy as it is out of the way for the majority of trips we take. Luckily, all our dealerships are within a few miles except the Nissan store.
    Must admit that the Hyundai's we've owned have been pretty stellar with the Accent having one warranty issue and my Tucson being almost perfect save for a piece of door trim coming off. Japanese/Korean brands tend to be pretty cheap to keep but the driving experience is pretty boring...I knew after driving the wife's A3 that I wanted that same driving thrill. The first drive of the Golf was so similar that I just knew the Tucson would be gone within the month...and it was. Would I do it again knowing what I know now? Absolutely but I'd have waited for the 2016 model to come out as I really want the usb ports and the android radio that the new models have...consider this a major faux pas on VW's part. Why not put these two things on a new model but wait till the second year of production to add them!! Really pissed off about this as I would've liked both things in my Golf.

    I bet the VW store wishes you lived farther away.. ;)

    Do you live close enough you might make a return visit?

    Yeah. I did really have to pace myself to see all three buildings plus the missile silo (and make photos).
    You should have let me know. I could have directed you to all of the local taprooms on the way home! ;)

    For pete's sake!! 27 hours without power and I come back to 65 posts!! And, not one new car, just a house sold!

    Ease up... ;)
  • Re: Chronic Car Buyers Anonymous

    I want to downsize and move down south. The thought of clearing out the house enough to do so is terrifying. I could do it. My wife has some hoarder tendencies (really has trouble getting rid of stuff).

    Having recently had practice clearing out my father's house in record time, I know I can make it happen. Would probably be divorced before the house sells, but you gotta do what you gotta do!
    Well... if that happens, you can get a lot smaller house. Assuming you have any money left (doubtful). ;)
